A 6-year-old girl is in the hospital after being hit and dragged underneath a car in West Baltimore on Thursday, according to police.
Baltimore police said they responded at 6:22 p.m. to reports of a pedestrian hit by a car at 6:22 p.m. on the 400 block of Gold Street.
When they arrived on scene, officers found a 6-year-old girl stuck underneath a car, police said. The child had been hit and dragged by the car after witnesses told police she walked between two parked cars and wandered into the street.
Police said the driver of the car attempted to stop before hitting the child, but was not able to.
The child had to be extracted from underneath the car, and she was taken to an area hospital in critical condition.
Police said the girl underwent surgery late Thursday and remains in the hospital as of Friday. Police are currently investigating the incident as an accident, officials said.
